Prominent El Paso attorney Richard Fenner Burges (1873-1945) had this house built in 1912 by local contractor J.E. Morgan. It was altered in 1927 according to plans of architect Otto H. Thorman, resulting in its current appearance featuring classical design elements, including a portico with fluted columns. Burges, whose wife, Ethel Petrie Shelton, died during the home's construction, was an active civic leader, serving as city attorney and member of the State legislature. The house was inherited by his daughter and remained in the family until 1986.
